lower desktop PC sales.
· 2.5″ Mobile/CE HDDs: Seasonally weaker notebook PC shipments, higher SSD attach rates and typically lower CQ1 demand for 2.5″ CE HDDs cut total 2.5″ mobile/CE shipments by more than six million units sequentially to around 37 million units.
· 3.5″/2.5″ Enterprise HDDs: Nearline HDDs rebounded by nearly one million units Q/Q to around 11.5 million HDDs on increased demand by a couple of hyperscale companies. Early
nearline capacity shipment estimates indicate a sharp rise from 73EB in CQ4 ’18 to as high as 88EB in CQ1 ’19. Seasonally weaker demand by enterprise IT systems vendors.

Final shipments to be published in CQ1 ’19 Quarterly Update and Executive Summary may change measurably.
